Re: America's Cup opening races

I agree the rounding did have an air of desperation. It appeared, if the graphics depict reality, that, further on, when both boats were on a port tack ETNZ was just outside of the tide line while Oracle was beating into the current. I think that could have had quite an impact.

I also thought Ken Reid was more insightful then the rest of the presenters that have called the races.
